Yeah, I'm flying in. Let me know where you guys staying, I haven't worked on it yet. I wouldn't mind hanging with you guys, I might even change my seats, altough I really like the first turn b/c it's the main attraction at the begining of the race.

Pretty Packed...

Considering there are about what, 300,000 people there for the race... and Indy isn't all that big... Check out St. Elmo's Steakhouse downtown if you have money burning a hole in your pockets. Try the Shrimp Cocktail too. Burn a hole right through your stomach lining...

I would be down for that. The more the merrier. Maybe we should wear E46fanatics name tags so we can spot each other easier? j/k

you don't need to go through all that(changing seats). we can all hang afterwards somewhere if you guys want. Saturday night i guess since everyone will be there by then. we'll figure something out

okay fellas, i am all set. i just reserved rooms for the weekend. i will be staying at the Sheraton in Indy. Address is 8787 keystone crossing for anyone else that is looking for rooms. Their rates are in between $200-250/night, which is not really that bad considering some of the other rates i have seen($390/night) I believe its pretty close to the track also.

i'd say very packed....i was there @ the 500 in '96.

Im really thinking bout going this year for a change...havet seen F1 yet. Im still debating whether I want to come a day early and watch qualifying and find somewhere to overnight, or camp off-field like I would @ Nazareth

The more I think about it, the more anxious I get. I cannot wait to go. It would def. be cool to go with a couple bimmers to Indy. I see you are from Jersey, we can get a little caravan going

Good luck Getting Pit passes is super difficult...I'll sell you my BAR/Honda one . I wanted to gaff some of their CF stuff, but I don't steal, and when i asked if I could have a small item they said no . Oh well, maybe this year...f

figure out where you are staying, we could meet up or something...I know that the BMW people and alot of the teams stay at the Westin Downtown

Autograph yes. Tires no. The tires are prototypes and they all have serial numbers that must be scanned in and out. Each tire is priceless. You think Bridgestone would just let you walk away with a tire they're working on? What if you were working for Michelin? It would be nice... but unfortunately impossible.

I think the Schummi in red is going to win.
